Toenail fungus can be a difficult issue to treat because it is often deep within the nail, where topical solutions may struggle to reach. At Suite Six Medical Aesthetics, we offer laser treatments for toenail fungus removal. These treatments are available to men and women living in Haverhill, Newburyport and Boston, MA, as well as those in Hampton, Kittery, ME and Portsmouth, NH, and the surrounding areas.
What is Toenail Fungus Removal?
Nail fungus is a fairly common condition that begins to eat away at the nails, causing them to become crumbly or weakened. It is not a very serious condition, but if not treated promptly, it can spread deeper into the nail or to other nails. In some cases, it can also cause significant discomfort. Toenail fungus is often treated with topical solutions, but these become less effective the more severe the fungal infection is. At Suite Six Medical Aesthetics, we offer laser treatments for toenail fungus removal using the Harmony XL Pro laser system. This provides a much more effective treatment than topical solutions or other treatments.
How Much Does Toenail Fungus Removal Cost in Boston & Newburyport, MA?
The cost of your toenail fungus removal at Suite Six Medical Aesthetics can vary depending on the extent of treatment necessary to deliver your desired results. During your initial consultation, we will assess your treatment goals in order to develop an individualized treatment plan. Once we determine the treatment approach that is best for you, we will be able to provide you with the exact cost of your treatment. We accept traditional payment methods and offer financing through CareCredit® for your convenience.
How is Toenail Fungus Removed?
During toenail fungus removal, we will use laser energy to target and heat the affected areas. As laser energy is delivered into the fungal infection, the heat destroys the fungus that is responsible, eliminating the infection. Since laser energy is so precise, we are able to target only the fungal infection without damaging the toenail or the skin underneath. This results in a safe, comfortable, and effective fungus removal treatment.
Does Toenail Fungus Removal Work Instantly?
In many cases, a single laser treatment will be effective at completely eradicating a fungal infection. However, patients with more severe infections that afflict larger areas may require multiple treatments. In this case, we will perform one treatment, then monitor the nail over the following weeks to determine if the infection has been successfully treated.
Is There Downtime After Toenail Fungus Removal?
Laser treatments for toenail fungus removal are safe and precise, minimizing damage to the skin and the toenail. For this reason, downtime is rarely required after a toenail fungus removal treatment. In some cases, patients may experience minor sensitivity or redness in the treatment area, but these effects typically fade within a few days and should not prevent patients from resuming their normal activities.
